2012

Roland Emmerich‘s next disaster film 2012 won’t hit theaters for a couple weeks (November 13th), but a sequel has already been planned… but not the normal kind of sequel. Entertainment Weekly has learned that Emmerich and executive producer Howard Gordon (Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice) are also developing a television drama titled 2013, which would be about what happens after the disaster. Gordon has already entered talks with ABC to develop the series, and if it does happen, don’t expect a lot of action to take place on the small screen, as this would be a drama set in a post apocalyptic setting.

LOL: 2012 Without The Special Effects

2012

Remember that clip from Roland Emmerich‘s upcoming epic disaster movie 2012, where John Cusack saves his family and ridiculously outruns an earthquake in a limo while almost all of Los Angeles is turned to dust around him? White Colours Studio has decided to reedit the five minute clip but remove the “distracting” special effects so that we can just focus on the performances. Watch the one and a half minute edit after the jump.

This 5-Minute Clip from 2012 Will Destroy Your World

20121

“California is going down!”

Last night between 10:50 and 11:00 p.m., Columbia Pictures apparently executed the largest American media roadblock ever, airing a 2-minute clip from 2012 on the major broadcast networks, local stations in the top 70 markets, and nearly 450 television stations in North America. The projected television audience alone for this project was 110 million, which I found staggering for its sheer audacity. Subsequently, the conclusion of that scene can be viewed in an almost-5-minute long clip on the internet, which you can catch after the break.

2012_ninja_survival

A few new clips slipped by us right as last week ended at the holiday weekend began. Well, two of them slipped by, and I hedged on posting the clip from Survival of the Dead at first because it’s fairly lousy, and that makes me sad. See all three (or whichever ones you choose) after the break. Read More »

Sony has released three new posters/banners for Roland Emmerich‘s new disaster film 2012. Say what you will about Emmerich, or his films, but I’m really digging the intense over-the-top ridiculous destruction pictured in this new art. Take a better look after the jump.

2012 Japanese Trailer

2012 japanese

It must be trailer week at Sony Pictures International. Yesterday they released an international trailer for Zombieland, and today they’ve released a new Japanese trailer for Roland Emmerich‘s new disaster flick 2012. It might start off similar to the previously released domestic trailer, but about half way through we begin to see a lot of scenes and sequences we haven’t seen before. We also begin to learn more about the story — where are the main characters going? How will they survive? The countdown clock is introduced.

To be honest with you, I’m more excited for this film than I should be. Yes, I’m not expecting a great movie, or even a good story, but the sequence we saw at Comic-Con with a limo outrunning an earthquake was so ridiculous, yet fun in all the ways that Transformers 2 should have been, but wasn’t. Check out the new Japanese trailer embedded after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
